Adobe Premiere Pro CC – Basic Editing for Beginners

In this tutorial I go over the simplest way to get started editing in Adobe Premiere CC. Questions? Comment below!

The version I’m using in the video is CC 2017, but most (if not all) of the steps I walk through are applicable to earlier and later versions of Premiere.

My god this is a terrible program. I have edited professionally for a long time, and premiere is just not that great a tool for storytelling. VFX and integration with AE yes, but editing a compelling conversation, nope.

I agree with Narane, as Nathan is an excellent teacher, using repetition to reinforce the application of technique with no hard-to-track “flying fingers.”
